BIG COZY CARDI by Andrea Mowry

From: $0.00

“In my opinion, every wardrobe needs a Big Cozy Cardi to pull on all year round! This cocoon cardi is full of texture and cozy to the max with its baby Suri alpaca collar! This sweater is worked from the bottom up with a small amount of seaming to create the armholes. The shawl collar and sleeve cuffs are then picked up and knit on to the body of the sweater.” -Andrea Mowry

SUGGESTED YARN
For this sweater I chose a lovely wool blend of Cormo, Merino & Romney for the body of the sweater. This blend is soft, bouncy and woolly and I love how it showed off the textured stitch pattern. For the collar I wanted to the coziest yarn I could find, and this Suri Alpaca fit the bill to a T!
